Fall of the wall

Then they grabbed markers and scrawled messages. “Go at it,” one professor encouraged. “Pretend it's spray paint.” Read more about how UNCG marked the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.

Study, memory and recognition

In January, Dr. Katherine Rawson '99 will attend an awards ceremony. But not just any awards ceremony. She will receive the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers in a ceremony at the White House. Read more about this prestigious award and her research.
